Think

I thought I would share an idea that I had for a friends birthday present. Now this is a very special friend and so I had to pull out the stops… And is what I came up with.   Granted it doesn’t look like much but when you open it… What’s inside?    Each card is…

Country mouse

to big London. I used to do this Journey at least twice a week a couple of years ago. Then I got Parkinsons. Then I got made redundant (hmmmmm). Then I stopped hanging out on trains and so my blog posts got shorter and more arty. I will leave it to you to decide whether…

It’s my birthday this week and, while I wanted a party, I wanted to do something the family would enjoy and that reflected the change in direction my life has taken over the last year.

It’s (not) my party
